For the case you wonder, why I decline your offer doing something together.
This explains it.

Now I know why there are so relatively few maledom videos on porn sites on the web. In too many parts of the U.S., they appear to live this real life.

I think I'm going to be sick.

If you want to really scare an engineer, have one of the last-line backups -- the ones that nobody normal even thinks about, the ones that are meant to make sure the system fails safe if something unimaginably apocalyptic happens -- fail.

The seed vault isn't the best backup against a global apocalypse; honestly, if that happens, then the odds of us being able to use this effectively aren't great either. But it is a backup against, for example, some rapidly-spreading plant disease causing a collapse of a major food crop. These backups are what we'd need to start engineering resistant strains if contamination happened globally faster than we could catch it. That's a nontrivial failure mode of our food system, and that's why this vault is really important to have.

It was designed to be self-operating, maintained at the required -18C primarily by the cold temperatures of Svalbard. An isolated station that would let the people who worry about our food supply sleep at night. But the system never expected this scale of climate change; and with the permafrost melting, water flooded in and froze in the entryway. Thank all the gods, the vault itself remained unbreached, but the system can no longer be considered to be stable in its own right; it's being manned 24/7 until we can figure out how to stabilize it.

There is a new evil Player in the #ecommerce area, and its based on NodeJS, Meteor and React.
They call themself +Reaction Commerce
And they use +MailChimp to do a targeted mail campaign on Magento users and Devs (who did most likely not subscribe themself to this list)

They should know the Magento ecosystem is big.
But they probably dont know, that Developers will remember who treats them badly (or spams them illegally)

Interesting insights into how the companies work.
Result for Uber is kind of what you may expect.
The result for Foodora is impressive. Its not great, but it sounds at least fair.
